San Diego Science & the Global Pandemic
May 14 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
San Diego has made a name for itself as a region that is not afraid to tackle hard problems.
…We’ve made monumental advances towards cures for Ebola, HIV, and certain cancers
…We’re pioneering the use of 5G
…We’re spearheading efforts to sequence the human genome affordably
And while there is no quick fix solution to this global pandemic, we’re betting that San Diego science will be part of the long-term solution.
Join us for a virtual panel to learn about the role of San Diego science in addressing the COVID-19 pandemic. The best part? This panel is for everyone. Whether you’re a rocket scientist or you failed your freshman year biology class, our expert panelists will break down the science for the non-scientists (like us) and answer all of the COVID-19 questions you’ve been googling.
